Sveti Ivan Tower in Dubrovnik

Views from Dubrovnik Old Town - Sveti Ivan Tower in Dubrovnik

I took this photo on my recent visit to Dubrovnik while walking around the Old Town, waiting for a friend to arrive from the Airport.

Taken on the rainy and gray day, this photo shows the views over well known Dubrovnik sightsPloče Gate , Dubrovnik’s Old Harbour, Porporela and Sveti Ivan Tower.

What I like about this photo are the shadeless, cold, metallic colours of Dubrovnik’s walls seen under diffused lights of yet another cloudy winter’s day on the Adriatic.
